Madonna and her relevancy

I'm sure this will start a huge war (as it always does) here at DL, but I thought I would share anyway. I'm fascinated that this site is so polarized by Madonna, a pop legend by anyone's standards. You either love her full on or despise her with the heat of a thousand suns. And that's what I don't understand. The hate you DLers have for this woman. Without having to list her past achievements (including bringing gay awareness to the masses (not a fringe group i.e., she may have "borrowed" vogueing from some queens in the Meatpacking District, but she alone brought it to the masses, thus bringing the gay scene to light), I wanted to focus on those haters who continue to rant she's "over" or "irrelevant". I am a fact-checker at heart. You cannot dispute the following: MDNA the tour is a huge success. Most ATTENDED and produced most money. Enough controversy. A fact. Her perfume is a huge success. I'm shocked. Who would buy it? Yet, a 2nd fragrance has been green-lit and all parties involved raked in tens of millions. Her clothing line is a smash. Actually, it's a pretty appealing product. Added accessories into the mix. Sold at mid-level store Macy's. MDNA the record actually did not flop in today's market. She outsold Rhianna's latest as well as Britney, Xtina. Facts. She won a Golden Globe for "Masterpiece" which I actually think was deserving of it as it compared to the other offerings (I include EJ's ill-advised train wreck). "W.E." was a major failure, yet one that only cost all parties involved around $15 million so certainly not "Ishtar" worthy of rebuke. Finally, technology: Youtube, the Superbowl audience, Facebook, Twitter. These are facts folks. I don't think there are that many "eldergays" left in the world to support such relevance. She's actually ranked #6 for trending on Facebook (Obama is #1; no other recording artist made the top 10) So, why the utter hate from a lot of you?
